. If your child has a prescription medication that needs to be given during the trip, Section A
needs to be signed by both physician and parent/guardian.
*Prescription medication must be in the original container, clearly labeled with the student’s name, name of medication and dosage. If you need an extra labeled container, your pharmacist can provide you with one. Do not send medication in a baggie or envelope.
*If your child has an Epi Pen or an inhaler, please check appropriate box. We will use forms already at school if we have them. If we do not have forms at school, we will need those filled out.
Relates to non prescription medication which was signed in Oct. 2011. Fill out only if any
changes are needed.
This section should be signed if you would like the nurse to administer a non prescription
medication that is not listed in B. This medication must be provided in the original container, clearly
labeled with the student’s name.
Please indicate here if you would like the nurse to call you.
The attached form and any medications need to be in clinic by Monday, May 21, 2012
Please do not send medication as your child is getting on the bus.
We will keep all medications with us in a central location. The exception to this would be medication such as inhalers or epi pens that students need to carry or to be given to the chaperone to carry.
Please call if you have questions or last minute medication changes or additions.
